Summary

Distilling the available knowledge on ethanol-induced liver damage and directly complementing the available bio-medical literature, Ethanol and the Liver covers pathogenic and clinical aspects of alcoholic liver disease. Providing broader coverage of the subject than any available monograph, the editors and their panel of experts relate basic science to pathogenesis and treatment modalities and explore future developments.

Coverage includes:
  • Histopathology-fatty liver, alcoholic hepatitis, and cirrhosis
  • Ethanol metabolism and its consequences
  • Mechanisms in the pathogenesis of ALD, including genetics, immunology, and insulin-like growth factors
  • Extrahepatic effects of ALD and the role of alcohol in potentiating liver damage due to other etiologies
  • Interaction of alcohol with viral hepatitis
  • Epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment
  • Management strategies, including transplantation

    The vast amount of knowledge and expertise gathered in this book make it an unparalleled resource.
